VISION 2020 Workshop: District-based Plans For Prevention Of Blindness

Moshi, Tanzania JUNE 10-14, 2002

The Vision 2020 workshop in Moshi will focus on creating a team approach to prevention and treatment of blindness in the region (eastern Africa).

As the overall theme of the upcoming workshop is district/region based planning for Vision 2020, we strongly encourage the participation of district/region health planning teams. We define a health planning team as including an eye care professional and one or two district/region health officers (who have authority to plan and implement agreed activities).
